Heavenly Father, fear is so real when we are in the midst of a tragedy or difficulty.  Please help me feel Your peace, love, and grace over any fear Satan tries to instill in me.  I know where this fear comes from and how desperately he wants me to rely on my fears rather than Your love.  Help me put aside the fears of the flesh and focus on the love that is more powerful than anything else I can imagine.

Thank You, Father for Your love and for helping me know the truth of Your love and how it can always combat the fear of the enemy.  Help me remember that on the tough days.

In Jesus’ name.


Joseph had never given his brothers any indication that he would go back on his word of peace and forgiveness, but they feared he would do just that.  Where do you think these fears come from? 

Why do we so often rely more on our emotions & feelings than on what we know to be true?

How can we combat this tendency?

Genesis 50:15-26

15 When Joseph's brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, “It may be that Joseph will hate us and pay us back for all the evil that we did to him.” 16 So they sent a message to Joseph, saying, “Your father gave this command before he died: 17 ‘Say to Joseph, “Please forgive the transgression of your brothers and their sin, because they did evil to you.”’ And now, please forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father.” Joseph wept when they spoke to him. 18 His brothers also came and fell down before him and said, “Behold, we are your servants.” 19 But Joseph said to them, “Do not fear, for am I in the place of God? 20 As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. 21 So do not fear; I will provide for you and your little ones.” Thus he comforted them and spoke kindly to them.

22 So Joseph remained in Egypt, he and his father's house. Joseph lived 110 years. 23 And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation. The children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were counted as Joseph's own 24 And Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die, but God will visit you and bring you up out of this land to the land that he swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.” 25 Then Joseph made the sons of Israel swear, saying, “God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here.” 26 So Joseph died, being 110 years old. They embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.
